Villalobos get game winner!

Monday night in San Diego,  Cliff Lee took a 3-0 lead into the 9th inning,  but when the first 2 runners reached base, Papelbon was brought in.  He gave up both of those runs and another 1, and Justin De Fratus allowed a run in the 10th and the Padres posted a 4-3 comeback win.  Carlos Ruiz had 3 hits and drove in a run for the Phillies.  Make sure to see a dynamite catch by Domonic Brown in the 7th inning.  At the time, it was 2-0 Phils, with 2 out and 2 on in the inning.

Mike Zagurski has declined assignment and opted for free agency.

The Cleveland Indians have sent Carlos Carrasco back to the Columbus Clippers.  Carlos pitched well last week, but struggled again on Sunday against the Twins.  In Columbus, Cameron Rupp had 2 doubles and drove in 2 runs to help Lehigh Valley top the Clippers, 9-3.

In Salisbury, Alejandro Villalobos doubled home Larry Greene with the winning run with 2 outs in the top of the 9th inning to give the BlueClaws a 3-2 win over Delmarva.  Red hot Willie Carmona had 3 more hits, he is 36 for his last 94 (that's .383) in his last 12 games, and is now hitting .298 for the year.  The Shorebirds got only 3 hits in the game, and both of their runs were unearned as Shane Watson, Danial Carela, Delvi Francisco and Steven Inch all threw well.  Francisco gets his 2nd win and Inch records his 8th save...........In Manchester, Maikel Franco had 3 hits- he is 11 for his frist 21 (.524) since his promotion, but the Fightin Phils dropped a 6-3 game to the Fisher Cats.  Zack Collier hit a home run for Reading.   Speaking of Reading, Anthony Hewitt hit 2 home runs on Sunday and drove in 4 runs, but Reading lost that one also,  by the score of 6-5.

In Buffalo, Anthony Gose had a single, a walk, a stolen base (#8)  and scored the only run for the Bisons in their 7-1 defeat at the hands of Durham.............In Louisville, Jason Donald had 2 hits, including a triple, knocked in a run and scored another to help lead the Bats to a 4-2 win over Rochester.............In Sacramento, the Colorado Springs SkySox beat the River Cats, 5-3.  Greg Golson hit his 5th home run for the Sox, and Michael Taylor (.312) had a hit and a walk, with a run scored  for the Cats.
